Longest Day Of The Year Ride

Bike Ypsi Longest (Day) Ride Of The Year Ride – Sunday, June 21st8pm – Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery (Norris at Forest in Ypsilanti) – A very casual paced ride celebrating the Summer solstice and the longest day of the year. This hour-long (at most) ride has a route that will take us to though the summer-quiet campus of Eastern Michigan University and a loop around St. Joes Hospital on the Border To Border Trail. Ride cancelled if raining at start time. Questions? Contact Bob at wolverbob@gmail.com. And remember, six months from now (in December) you will only be dreaming of riding your bike in shorts and daylight at 8pm!

Bike Repair Day at University Townhouses in Ann Arbor

The fabulous siblings Jonny and Sara Lennon are bringing back the Bike Repair Day event for it’s fourth time at University Townhouses in Ann Arbor.

 

This is an event that gets kids and families more familiar and confident with the maintenance and workings of their bikes, teaches helmet and road safety, and is always a fun day.
In the past they have had volunteers for bike repair, washing and decorating bikes (which FLY will be helping with this year), help with running games and races for the kids, and general directing of people and events. and we need as many volunteers as we can get!

 

The event will take place on July 25th and will run from 10-1 or so, and we would need volunteers from 9 to 2 or any time in there that works! Feel free to email foxintheforest@gmail.com with questions or anything, but let us know as soon as possible if you would like to help with this event!!

Women’s 100(KM) Ride

Some of the Bike Ypsi women will be joining with thousands of other women around the world to ride a metric century (63 miles) on Sunday, July 26, 2015.

 

Want to join us? If so, consider coming out for some of our shorter training rides (25-30 miles). Information on training rides can be found on our Google Calendar (Bike Ypsi) and on Facebook. We hope to have a couple more training rides with longer miles leading up to the big day!

 

More info on the Rapha initiative is here: http://pages.rapha.cc/womens100. Feel free to add your name and email to be counted!

 

Those of us leading these events have an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified on these rides. Our goal is not to exclude but rather to build the presence of traditionally underrepresented groups in cycling.

 

Details on where to meet for the Bike Ypsi July 26th metric century ride will be forthcoming.
